Swipe to Skip Tracks in iPad’s New Music App [iOS 5]



Here’s a nice little feature we’ve discovered in the first iOS 5 beta – a great way to skip tracks in the iPad’s new Music app.

While listening to your music in the iPad’s terrific new Music app, you can swipe left or right on the album art to skip between tracks. Now you now longer have to tap to display the controls and navigate between tracks using the little buttons in the corner.

Unfortunately the feature doesn’t work from the lock screen, but I hope this changes in future releases – it would be even more useful from there.
